APA Minority Fellowship Program sponsors Psychology Summer Institute

The Minority Fellowship Program of the American Psychological Association is sponsoring its ninth annual Psychology Summer Institute (PSI) on July 17-23, 2011, in Washington, DC.

PSI provides educational, professional development, and mentoring experiences to advanced doctoral students of psychology and psychologists who are in the early stage of their careers. Participants are guided toward developing a grant proposal, postdoctoral fellowship, dissertation, treatment program, publication, or program evaluation project. All projects must focus on issues affecting ethnic minority communities.

Participants will receive one-on-one mentoring on their projects by a consultant. Expert faculty will present seminars on selected topics such as grant writing, publishing, and specific areas of research or service delivery. There will also be opportunities to network with representatives from federal agencies and foundations.

For further information, consult the PSI website.  The deadline for applications is May 1, 2011.
